Gigi & Alan:
The Story of Dakota Blue

So how did this former punk rock star, then filmmaker, then accountant–become a chef and restaurant owner? You’ll have to ask his beautiful wife, a former paralegal turned realtor. Gigi and Alan Conner have been serving great food and drink to their neighbors for the past five years. As long time residents of Grant Park, they wanted to create a restaurant where the neighbors could gather and children are welcome. The food is always fresh, wholesome and a good value. There’s something on the menu for everybody.

They’re also active in the community. Gigi is one of the founding members of the Grant Park Parent Network and the Neighborhood Charter School. If you’re looking for a home in the area, ask Gigi. She’s a great real estate agent, too.
